          Weird question, will hairspray setoff a propane detector? Twice now its went off after spraying my hair. Coincidence? Or maybe I just need anew propane detector?

                  Aerosol products, when sprayed near the detector, may set it off.

                          I would also suggest checking the expiration date if you haven’t recently just in case it does need to be replaced.

                              It is aerosol! They make a spritzer variety of the same stuff I use so I’ll try that and see if it helps. I did check the expiration and we are good. Thanks for the replies!

                                  If it continues to go off, please take it seriously. Here’s an article covering what to do if it continues: https://camperfaqs.com/rv-propane-detector-keeps-going-off
